Chairman's comments on the First Minister's Indyref2 statement

27 Jun 2017

Paul Curran, Chairman of the Scottish Property Federation, said:

“Today’s statement is a welcome step in the short term but nonetheless, with members who invest in Scotland for the long-term, we remain concerned at the prospect of further political uncertainty in a year’s time that could impact on longer term investment decisions by our members.  The First Minister is right to concentrate on getting the best possible deal for Scotland and the wider UK out of the Brexit process for now, with the retention of access to talent and skills for the business sector a key priority. We encourage the UK Government to work positively with the Scottish Government towards this goal.  We look forward to continuing our dialogue with the Government about what more can be done to attract much needed investment into Scotland’s economy through its real estate sector.”
